Beverly and I were on the staff of the Desert Breeze our senior year.  She was the exchange editor.  I rermember Kathryn Naylor, Beverly, Sharon Taylor and I proofreading galley sheets late into the night.  On those late nights we ordered Chinese food.  Invariably, one of us would have to go to the back door of Frazier Hall and keep the door open so the person who went to pick up the food could get back in.  Seemed like Beverly got that task more than the rest of us. 

Beverly's dad, Phil owned a coin shop on Fremont street next door to Berta's Specialties.  We used to walk down to the shop after school and her dad would sometimes treat us to a Coke.  He was a very nice man. 

Beverly was a nice girl, great sense of humor, a wonderful smile and contagious laugh.  She will be missed.  Condolences to her family.  Rest in peace, Beverly.

Claire's wonderful tribute mentions Beverly's father.  I knew Beverly although not as well as Claire did.  I found this article about Beverly's parents.
